A long-rumored middleweight title fight is official for Bellator’s return to Italy. Bellator officials recently announced that 185-pound title holder Rafael Carvalho (14-1 MMA, 5-0 BMMA) faces Italy’s own Alessio Sakara (19-11 MMA, 2-0 BMMA) in the main event of Bellator 190 on Dec. 9 at Nelson Mandela Forum in Florence. Carvalho brings an impressive 14-fight winning streak to the cage, standing undefeated since dropping his pro debut in 2011. Included in that 14-fight run are 11 knockout wins. The Brazilian scored the Bellator middleweight crown with an October 2015 TKO of Brandon Halsey and has since defended it twice with a pair of wins over Dutch knockout artist Melvin Manhoef.
